Amy Mitten, who does mystery samplers and reproduces antique samplers and dyes threads and is the author of the very necessary "Autopsy of the Montenegrin Stitch" is hinting at a wonderful thing to come. She is planning an online class and is providing clues on her website, amymitten.com. Look under Tutorials.
Thus far, we see thread winders--made of needlework and origami--as part of this experience to come.
I do love the internet! So many opportunities and you can stay home in your jammies to participate!
